Welcome! - You may (or may not) have noticed I've been a bit absent on the blog this week. I've been madly working on Christmas cards and nursing a cold on top of it so I haven't spent much time commenting on blogs or posting on mine either.

I planned to skip SONGOGRAPHY
this week because I just didn't think I had anything that fit the prompt. While running through the lyrics of this weeks song: Big Yellow Taxi by Counting Crows, I came upon this line in the song:
Hey farmer, farmer, put away your DDT
I don't care about spots on my apples,
Leave me the birds and the bees
Bingo! - A light bulb went off in my head as I remembered this photo that I had taken a week ago while out on a little photo shoot.
I had stopped on a country road to take some photos of these wild apples when I spotted something flitting around in the brush on the apple branches. I managed to get a shot of this adorable little yellow bird (I have no clue what type of a bird it is though). I think this fits those lyrics quite well. You don't see much of this around anymore.
Don't forget to stop by Kathy's blog (You'll Shoot Your Eye Out) and check out how other's interpreted this song.
Now please join me for SCAVENGER HUNT SUNDAY
over on Ashley's blog, (Ramblings and Photos) where this weeks prompts were:
Where I Stood, Silver, Tiny, In The Cupboard and Shadow.
WHERE I STOOD: - This is the scene from where I stood on Tuesday morning:
Thankfully it didn't last long and while it's been to cold for it to melt completely most of it's gone (for now). I'd like for it to stay away for much, much longer though since I'm not much of a winter fan.
SILVER: Getting a little creative here...
Ghost, One of the neighbors kittens has silvery looking fur. Here he was enjoying romping in the Snow that arrived on Tuesday morning.
TINY: Tiny little snowflakes on a branch.
IN THE CUPBOARD: At our house after Thanksgiving the regular coffee mugs and glasses get put away and out come the "Holiday" mugs and glasses:
Both the Penguin mugs are new editions this year to the growing collection.
SHADOW: Seriously we had snow on Tuesday and then it got cold and then it got colder and then today it got even colder....BUT....the sun came out and I actually ventured out and snapped a photo of some leaves and their shadow at one of the local parks. Mind you it was only 9 degrees outside so I didn't stay out very long. Frozen fingers were not on the agenda.
Hoping it warms up soon. - Take care & thanks for stopping by.
